An update on the covid-19 blog
In this blog I want to highlight modifiable lifestyle factors. It is more important than ever to have a healthy and strong immune system to defend ourselves. You can certainly strengthen your immune system and enhance your body’s ability to fight contagious diseases like corona viruses. In order for your immune system to perform at its best, it needs to be balanced – meaning, not overactive or under active.
Your immune system is a complicated network of specialized cells, chemical messengers, tissues, organs, and glands that work together to protect your body from harmful foreign invaders; viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites.
You need to address many factors to strengthen your immune system. It is important to take a balanced approach to give your immune system all it needs. Some of the most powerful ways to keep your immune system running at full capacity are addressing your lifestyle.
